WOMEN BUILD

is an empowering event for the participants who are building, and for local women who need affordable housing!

Watch for Women Build Updates Coming in Early 2022!

Our Women Build events provide the opportunity for women to take a proactive step in helping other women improve their living situations. Your participation makes a huge difference by empowering local women and families to achieve a more stable and secure life.

To participate in Women Build we ask that you help us engage in peer to peer fundraising, or sponsor a team. Our online fundraising platform is easy to use and allows you to conveniently share why you are involved in this event. Need help? We are happy to answer your questions.

Each participant is encouraged to raise at least $500. Your support and outreach helps build strength, stability and self-reliance for local families. One way you can easily and painlessly raise money is by using e-mail and social media to tell your family and friends the story of why you are participating in Women Build. We have many tips – stay tuned for more information!
